Join in this webinar to see the workflow that takes a roof modeled in Revit and generates complex wood or metal truss systems automatically using AGACAD's enhanced Truss+ extension that's part of our Wood/Metal Framing Roof BIM Solution.

Now Truss+ is even more user-friendly and flexible, thanks to the extended possibilities for creating and freely modifying various roof truss layouts and individual truss structures. Moreover, truss systems can be created for roofs that have different hip ends and side pitches, and you‘ll have more truss overhang framing variations to choose from.

Smart Details is going to be phased out over the next few months. In its place, we present you Smart Connections, our newest BIM Solution for Revit, that brings additional functionality and more intuitive performance along with a name that more clearly reflects its main purpose.

IMPORTANT NOTE for EXISTING USERS of Smart Details! Although you can use the same configurations as you’ve been using with Smart Details, some of them might be disrupted due to changes in the software. Smart Details will still be available for a time so that you can finish your current projects and then modify your configurations for new projects so that they will mesh with Smart Connections.

The remainder of this post is dedicated to showing what configurations existing users of Smart Details may need to modify when transitioning to Smart Connections. For starters, when making the switch, you might need to modify your wall, column, and beam connection configurations.

For example:
If my Smart Details configuration was inserting corbels, column shoes, and bolts as shown below......the same configuration used with Smart Connections gives me this messy result.

That’s because the definition of faces of Columns and Foundation elements has been changed in Smart Connections. But this way it will be clearer and more systematic. So, to fix it, you will have to go in and redo that part of your configurations. Check the descriptions below for details on how to do that.

Our company continues the tradition of sharing information not only about our products but also about how to facilitate your everyday tasks in Revit. Below, our structural engineering maestro Valensas shares an insight about equality settings in Revit® dimensions.



In working with various clients, I’ve noticed there are some things that for experienced Revit users look simple but for beginners might be very frustrating.

Recently I’ve received a couple of questions from different users about how to get an Equality Formula in dimensions when they have several of the same dimensions on a dimension chain.

Let’s take a look at the settings we have in Dimension properties.

The other week we were in Växjö, Sweden exhibiting at Forum Wood Framing Nordic with our partner AEC. While there, we met a lot of wood building designers and manufacturers who liked our software, especially because of the flexibility it offers in Revit. We also had the pleasure of meeting some of our existing clients, which is always a highlight for us these kinds of events!

We showed our latest in wood framing for conference attendees who were interested in our timber software. The forum provided the perfect opportunity to demonstrate our newest solution — Wood Framing CLT — to the Scandinavian market.

Thank you!
